Two questions?

How? and Why? I'm guilty of wasting money on stupid stuff at times ... but this is a little much.

http://www.gizmag.com/go/7030/

Summary - March 23, 2007 UK-based bespoke luxury goods creator Luvaglio has created the first million dollar laptop. That’s what the first of their luxury laptops will sell for. Full details of the laptop have not been released at this point, but it is known that it incorporates a 17" widescreen LED lit screen with a specially designed anti-reflective glare coating for clear and brighter image, 128GB of Solid State Disk space and a slot loading Blue-Ray drive. There is an integrated screen cleaning device and a very rare coloured diamond piece of jewellery that doubles up as the power button when placed into the laptop and also acts as security identification.

Thought I would post an image which was not being blocked. I can't believe the site watermarked an image that is not only common, but it doesn't belong to them.

Let me be the first to say this is incredibly stupid.  Expensive laptops are one thing (my laptop, at the time I bought it, was valued at about $2800, though I paid far less), but $1,000,000?  Expensive jewelry, ok.  But, that doesn't look very good, and nothing in there is that valuable.  And in 5 years, it will be VERY outdated.  It's also REALLY UGLY. 

What's the upside here?  Who is this catered to?  People who WANT to throw money away?  Most expensive status items once you buy them you can continue to use them as long as they last, and they're the best at what they do.  You buy a $4,000,000 piece of art, you can hang it in your home and say you have it forever.  Or even sell it and not be out much.  Same with jewelry or very high end cars. 

This isn't the best, will become outdated and make the owner look bad, and just...  I don't get it.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
